While My Guitar Gently Weeps is a personal fav.

I'm a huge Duane Allman fan. The Duane Allman/Wilson Pickett version of Hey Jude is one of my fav's.

When I was in high school in 1964 one of the Winnipeg radio stations ran what they called the "instant 11". People would call in from 6 to 8pm and request their favorite song. At 8 they would play the top 11 requested tunes. There were nights when all 11 were Beatles tunes.

Well, Winnipeg must not be all that bad. I was six and had no idea, but my older siblings were going nuts. I think my parents believed they were raising monkeys.

Just finished watching the 50 year Beatles tribute and thought it was pretty good. I thought it was odd they featured mostly the later music and not the early music. One thing that hit me being a fairly big Beatles fan is I have never heard "I want to hold your hand" sang by Paul McCartney outside of the old original single and the Ed Sullivan
Show clip. Never on any concerts I have been to or other singing appearances he has had. He always seems to rotate fairly tight around the ones he played on the show tonight.

I think he's limited by not having Lennon and Harrison around.

The impression I got (and always get from any Beatles tribute or retrospective) is their later music is considered their more "artsy", innovative, ground-breaking, vanguard work. Their raison d'etre. The music that inspired all those other musicians. So they always lean on that and gloss over the fun 1963-1964 stuff.

Their early stuff was considered then and still today (although people never actually mention it), their "bubble gum", Teeny-Bopper music. Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Not "serious" stuff.

My favorite B songs are silly, funny, simple, down to earth ones (songs with Paul's signature all over and a few by Ringo).

I played for a while (bass) with a steel player who worked in Nashville with Johnny Russell, who wrote "Act Naturally". He'd been trying to make it in Nashville, but when Russell told him "boy, shine my shoes", that was enough. He came north and we had a western swing band

Favorite Beatles song

One more thing about that guy: we called him "Snaky Steve" (I don't recall his last name and wouldn't post it anyway).

He used to leave his steel at our apartment. When we dissolved the band, we asked him to play one more tune. He did: "Amazing Grace".

Favorite Beatles song

I had the news on this morning and it made me think of this chorus:

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the West behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my my my my my my my my mind
